Additional Contributions

On the first day of the workshop we have a Fest Colloquium on the occasion of Sigurd Hofmann's 60th birthday, with Yuri Oganessian as speaker.

The program on the second day is rather dense. We selected speakers who will present an overview on their field of work with respect to further possible developments.

After the individual talks we left enough time for lively discussion - not only directed to the speakers - which also could include short contributions loosely related to the presented subjects. Therefore do not hesitate to bring one or two foils along with you, which are connected to your most urgent needs for future successful work in your field of research.
